In 1900, a group of sponge divers found a sunken ship from between 70 and 60 BC off the coast of the Greek island of Antikythera. In the wreck, they discovered ancient statues, coins and other treasures. From September 15 to October 7, a team of divers and archaeologists returned to the site and recovered many artifacts, including a bronze spear, which may have been part of a statue of the goddess Athena.
